Thanks for the error pic, that looked vaguely familiar. Unfortunately upon heading to the phpbb support boards I got a message that they're recovering from a site breach and will be back up as soon as they can (comforting, I know).

At any rate, as soon as their support forums come back up I can research this further....I think it's vaguely related to a combination of:
a) Too many attempts/failures in a short amount of time

combined with

b) the fact that the "simpledark" theme pack I use was originally created for an older version of phpbb (the language that runs this forum), I had the pack modified when phpbb updated to version 3.0 but there might be a snipit of code missing that's not showing the CAPTCHA


Since I'm not sure exactly when the support forums are going to be back up, we'll just have to wait on this for a bit. In the mean time, if you host your pics anywhere (Imgur, flickr, photobucket, etc) you can just link photos instead of attaching them.

Ok, have intermittent success. First I tried to upload 4 pictures in one post. On the 4th upload it failed. I then tried again and it failed on the 2nd picture. I then tried 1 at a time. This failed twice in a row, then worked twice in a row, then failed on the fifth. So with 11 attempts it worked 6 times and failed 5. This was still with Firefox.

Thanks,
Mike

PS: when trying to submit this post I get the error: "You have provided an invalid answer to the question" Below there is a question. Looks like some form of captcha, but don't know what to type. Screen capture attached (if I'm lucky). This post with IE (first attempt was firefox). In retrospect, think I may have been logged out between the start and finish of the post.

I'm also using win 7 enterprise, my firefox is version 34.0.5 - Posting a small pic here to verify that combo is OK. (There is a small pop-up window that comes up as the upload is happening, don't know if a pop-up blocker would stop the upload from actually happening or just hide the progress window)

I am using Firefox 33.1, and Windows 7 Enterprise. I was going to try from home computer last night (using work computer now). Will try again today to see if it was an intermittant issue, and try again with IE 10.

Thanks,
Mike

Hi Mike,

I haven't seen any posting issues before, can you tell me what your operating system and browser (Firefox, chrome, etc) is? Also could you try an alternate browser?

Its not the size of the pics. The first time I tried, it gave an error regarding that before any window popped up saying it was uploading them. I spent some time shrinking them. They are only about 236K. The message said they needed to be under 256K (or was it 250K).

Like I said, I had one occasion where it accepted one picture, but when I tried the second the error occured again. Plus similar errors occurred with just normal posts that had no pictures.

There's no limit on the number of posts you must have to post a picture. I'm sure the problems are caused by the size of the pics. As Mr. RT says, try shrinking your pictures. That should work.

In other forums, you have to have posted a certain amount of times before you can upload pictures. I'm not sure if that applies here.

Edit: Also, sometimes your picture is too big. Try reducing the size.

ok getting weird issues now, was able to upload 1 picture, but the same issue came back when I tried to add a second picture. I tried to post to this topic, then got an error that I didn't answer the question correctly (there was no question to answer). Looking down, it then had a box to enter the word seen in the picture below, but there was no picture.
